Kota Kinabalu City Tour

Take a trip to explore the iconic attractions of Sabah’s capital city in the Kota Kinabalu City Tour. Covering historical buildings and sightseeing, the flexible program allows you to enjoy Kota Kinabalu in a relaxed manner. Previously named Jesselton, Kota Kinabalu was razed to the ground in WWII by the Allied Forces abandoning it during the invasion of the Japanese. In 1963, the city was rebuilt and named Kota Kinabalu. Kota Kinabalu is a busy city with a small town atmosphere. Affectionately known as simply KK, the longer you spend here the more the place grows on you. Overlooking the South China Sea and the beautiful tropical islands and virgin rainforest of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, the Crocker Range and Mount Kinabalu as its backdrop, one could not wish for more superior visual variety.

The main landmarks you will visit in the Kota Kinabalu Cultural City Tour include a bird’s eye view of the city at Signal Hill, Pu Tou Tze Buddhist Temple, Sabah State Museum, Sabah Foundation Building with only three of its kind in the world with such design concept and a picturesque City Mosque built on a manmade lake! This half day trip is approximately 3 hours.
